History Of The Panty
Alluring , seductive, playful or charming no matter what we think of them the panty has came a long way since the early 19th century when they wore pantaloons under there skirts. In the 1940's corsets and lingerie were quite popular and Frederick's of Hollywood had open up there first store. Women flocked for these fashionable pieces of lingerie. The alluring new styles gave women a more sensual feel when worn. Flashy, colorful fashions were made more available, created in cotton, silk, satin and lace made these sensual little pieces more desirable to both men and women.
In the 1960's women became more open-minded about life in general and their feminity thus beginning the trend of lingerie looking more like there own anatomy. Feminist complained that women's undergarments were to control and distort the appearance of a woman's figure. This wonderful movement caused millions of women to have a different outlook on their undergarments. Thus women's panties were born, creating a beautiful piece of lingerie!
In some cultures, panties have somewhat became a sensual icon associating it with being playful and mischievous. Young women as well as old enjoy wearing the risque' little panties as they make them feel sensual as they slip them on underneath their clothing.

The original cotton brief known as "Granny Panties" are high at the waist and sit just below the belly button. Many women and young girls wear these panties as they have came along way from being ugly and boring. They are made with many patterns, color and flair. If you own them embrace them they should no longer be called the "Granny Panty".
Hip hugger panties are worn lower with the waistband hugging the hips, many young women love and admire these darling little things. I believe you may also call these the string bikini.
Famous Boy Shorts
Boy Shorts were based on men's briefs, yes you got it men's briefs. The ladies loved them so much the fashion industry decided to create the look for women. They have short legs extending below the crotch and coming in all sizes , designs and colors. They are made of cotton, lace, silk, whatever your heart desires.

Commonly called "dental floss" panties. Similiar to Tangas the rear end is not covered and has a narrow piece of material extending from the crotch all the way to the waistband. They are sensual little panties that make your derriere' and define the shape of your buttocks.
